One of the members of the Peanut Gallery, Salim in Oman, sent me some more typos that are actual words recognized by Spell Checker software.
He wrote: “… you may odd, I mean add, the following in your lost, I mean list. Hehehe.”
● add vs. odd
● list vs. lost
● tried vs. tired
● deal vs. dial
● steam vs. stream
● valve vs. value
● project vs. protect
● affect vs. effect – we had a whole Tip of the Day on this one.
● path vs. bath
● vary vs. very
● time vs. tome
And I thought of a few more:
● compiled vs. complied
● field vs. filed
● range vs. rage
And today’s Typo of the Day is yet another example:
“We encountered a tin, poor-quality reservoir at 4,308 ft.”
If you encountered a vein of tin, yes that would be very poor reservoir quality.
I’m sure y’all meant “thin,” but again, Spell Checker missed it entirely.
